    Looking Ahead

    Strengthening trade winds are expected across the island chain. These strong trades are expected to continue through early next week with clouds and showers most prevalent over windward and mauka areas. Some showers and clouds may travel to leeward sides from time to time riding on the breezy winds.

Leeward areas will be partly sunny but could get some isolated showers riding in our breezy trade winds. East winds are expected from 15 – 25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph. High temperatures from 82° to 87°.
